Manish Malhotra Latest Bridal Collection At India Couture Week 2016
Top fashion designer presenting latest collection at the stage of India Bridal Couture week 2016 in wide range of luxury bridal wear outfit feature with Padukone & Fawad Khan. This season, he presented ‘The Persian Story’ inspired by the architecture of the fabled land of Persia. “I have always been drawn to Iranian culture and music so I decided to add a touch of the lost world to this season’s collection,” says the designer. The drop shoulder blouse has become something of a Manish Malhotra staple on the runway. This season, the MM bride dropped her dupatta in favour of bare clavicle. The lehengas however remained monumentally opulent and by way of sheer size and embellishment—heavy to say the least.

Malhotra went back to the vintage techniques of couching and embroidering velvet with dabka to bring an old-worldly opulence to his pieces. Hazoorilal Jewellers by Sandeep Narang partnered with the designer on the jewellery. But the final flourish on the show was a line-up bookended by Fawad Khan who played the opening act, and Deepika Padukone whose presence called for audible gasps and cheers.
Padukone who closed the show, walked in a particularly decadent red lehenga, and was visibly panting as she finished the long walk. “It’s been years since I returned to the runway and Manish’s lehengas are heavier than I remember,” she said to the press. The object in question took over three months of handwork to be completed. But the weight of couture is hardly a hitch in the way of brides wanting a slice of the Manish Malhotra glamour on their big day. The excited gathering of guests whose eyes lit up at every passing look is testament to the fact.
